RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Allen started at free safety for the Falcons in 2015, racking up 69 tackles, three interceptions and a sack over the course of 15 games. He's expected to anchor the position again this season, and he should benefit now that he's got a year of Dan Quinn's system under his belt. 70 to 80 tackles and a few interceptions seems like an attainable target for Allen this season.
Allen will contend for the starting free safety role as training camp begins. He'll battle with Charles Godfrey and Kemal Ishmael for that honor, but the winner will certainly have plenty opportunities to put up big defensive numbers in a defense that's hoping to improve on a disastrous 2014 campaign.
